I had a problem using this and installing the Experimental version. I didn't
try installing the Stable version.

ConTeXt ran fine but somehow the map files were messed up and trying to run
pdflatex gave a long list of warnings about duplicate fonts listed in map
files and attempts to build the Lucida Bright fonts. Un-installing didn't
help! I had to rerun the TeX configuration and the ConTeXt removal done
during that configuration deleted many map files in
texmf.local/fonts/map/pdftex/context/ which cleaning things up and got
pdflatex up and running again.

Hmmm... a not so subtle statement that ConTeXt is supposed to be better than
LaTeX? :-)

Good Luck,
